Bruises, Fatigue, Headaches, etc

I have been getting these bruises on my arm in places where its hard to bump into something. The bruising has been happening for about 2 going on 3 years now. I have also been getting more headaches and getting sick way more often than I use to. About 2 years ago, I was also diagnosed with a heart murmur. I get very tired easily and feel worn out almost every day. I have been tested for iron and B12 deficiency, and its not that. I'm not sure if this could be related to the medications I'm taking (Rizatriptan, Diclofenac, and Fulticasone) since I have only started to take the medication last year. I was on ibuprofen but stop taking them since the doctor thought the bruising was caused by it. The doctors are treating the conditions that I mentioned separately. I'm not sure if they should be treating the symptoms together or separate. I'm starting to get scared, I'm just want to know what is happening to me.

you should have a primary care physician who can coordinate these things...each doctor must know what the other one is doing and they should be working together....that is usually what your PCP does for you. You also need to check closely the side effects for all your medications.  If you must, make a chart listing each med across the top and list all the side effects of ea under the relate med.  Then compare them.  Doctor's are human first and then doctors and they "practice" medicine...  You need to participate more in your health care.
